The Defender 130 line-up additionally features a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine that produces 493 horsepower and 610Nm of torque. The Supercharged V8 accelerates Defender 130 from 0 to 100kmph in 5.7 seconds (0 to 60mph in 5.4 seconds).

A word from the Land Rover Officials

Managing Director of Defender, Mark Cameron said, “Defender 130 Outbound is an incredibly desirable addition to the Defender family, for our most adventurous clients who love to get out and explore and need greater load-carrying space with a five-seat configuration. Its unique design enhancements and spacious interior provide a compelling blend of capability and practicality. The 4x4 family offers something for everyone, with the introduction of the V8 powertrain to Defender 130, while the new County Exterior Pack celebrates Defender’s roots with a modern take on a classic design.”
